      Notes 
      • John Puckett's second wife Carrie raised his children after Adah died. Mom (Ina Wolfe ) thinks there were four boys in all.
      • According to Aunt Mildred Wolfe, I remember good stories about Uncle John's skill in psyching out a bargin and making money. 1) He went to visit Leonidas in San Francisco once for about a month. Couldn't find an apartment to rent so bought a house. Sold it a month or so later at a very nice profit. 2) One night after midnight someone came ringing his bell(in Lincoln). It was a farmer with a load of watermellons. He'd tried all day to sell them to some grocery and had to get going.
        He knew Uncle John so came to him. Uncle John bought them and sold them the next day at a roadside stand-at a nice profit again. 3) One day he was riding in a train (from Lincoln to Indianola or something). About Grand Island he looked out the
        window and there dumped along the track was a woole pile of what looked like good lumber. He got off the train at Grand Island, found out that the lumber had been dumped after a wreck or something, bought it for a pittance, and trucked it off
        somewhere and sold it - nice profit again! You can see that I was greatly impressed by "nice profit."
      • According to Uncle John Wolfe," Uncle John Puckett was a shrewed businessman but he knew his sons could not handle his estate so Dad (Asa Wolfe) did it. Uncle John was also the village water dowser. "
      • Mom (Ina Mae Wolfe) says that Uncle John was thrilled when I was named Rebecca. It was his mothers name and Aunt Carrie says that he walked around the house saying "Rebecca, Rebecca". Rebecca was his mother's name and even though my parents
        didn't intentionally name me after her, Uncle John was very happy.
